In a surprising revelation, actress, talk show host Jada Pinkett Smith disclosed in an interview that she and her husband, Will Smith, have been living separately since 2016. This revelation comes in the wake of the Oscars incident where Will Smith confronted comedian Chris Rock for his jest about Jada. Their marriage, which had seemed unblemished, had already been under strain for years before the infamous incident. Despite vehemently denying rumors of affairs and an open marriage, Jada Pinkett Smith openly discussed an extramarital “entanglement” with singer August Alsina in 2020 during a period of separation from her husband. This revelation provides new insights into their relationship and the events at the Oscars.
